This won't, however, be an ‘adaptation’ in the original sense of the word. The movie will use previously recorded footage of the stage production featuring the original cast at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in New York. The footage was captured over three shows under the careful direction of Tommy Kail, with the added effect of some setup shots to ensure each element of the show is presented to the movie theatre audience from the best seat in the house. Of course, this also means the film will eventually make it’s way to the Disney+ streaming platform.[video_embed id='1887432']RELATED: Lin-Manuel Miranda, Mindy Kaling and more announced as Oscars presenters[/video_embed]For Hamilton fans who weren’t able to shell out $500+ to see the original production, this will surely be very exciting news.
